We are the “go-to” law firm in Utah for QDROs that help our clients properly divide retirement funds when necessary. In any divorce proceeding when a spouse’s pension benefits or other retirement plan benefits are split with the other spouse, the law requires a QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Order). A QDRO specifies to the retirement plan provider how to divide the benefits between the spouses. QDROs are always needed for private pension or 401(k) plans governed by ERISA, as well as retired military plans, government thrift savings plans, and civil service savings retirement plans.
Due to the high level of technicality and detail involved to meet legal and retirement plan requirements, you need a knowledgeable lawyer to prepare your QDRO. Also, you probably need a QDRO lawyer before the divorce decree is finalized to help you and your divorce counsel identify and address all the issues related to division of retirement funds. Attorney Graham Norris has years of experience drafting all different kinds of QDROs and advises QDRO clients throughout Utah. Contact him today for all your QDRO needs.
